Overview

Sangiovese was purposefully selected for our Rosé due to its varietal charm and savoury tannins. These virtues are perfectly compatible to our pursuit of a drier and more structured style of Rosé.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale bright pink

Aroma/Palate

The il Vescovo Rosé exudes rose petal and cranberry flavours. The palate is subtle and balanced, with lingering pomegranate and chalky flavours. We have opted for a drier style, as this in combination with the textural mouth feel showcases the intricacies of Sangiovese and also allows for the wine to be enjoyed with food.
